Notary Services

Wright Library is pleased to offer basic notary services to the public at no charge.

No appointment is necessary but we do recommend calling before your visit to ensure a notary is available and able to accept the documents you have. ​

What we CAN notarize:

  • Simple documents that do not require special expertise, such as:
    • Auto titles
    • Simple affidavits, for example, the BMV's Fifty Hour Affidavit
    • Medical release forms 


What we CANNOT notarize:

  • Documents in languages other than English
  • Children’s signatures or fingerprints
  • Real estate transactions
  • Deeds
  • Wills
  • I-9 forms
  • Lengthy, complex documents



You must:

  • Bring valid, government-issued photo ID
  • Bring all unsigned documents to be notarized. Documents must be signed in the presence of the notary.
  • Complete all information above the signature line prior to signature notarization
  • Bring your own witness(es) if needed.
  • Present documents in plenty of time before closing; notary service ends 30 minutes prior to closing time.
  • Limit notary requests to no more than 5 signatures per patron, per day 

Our notaries reserve the right at their discretion to refuse a request that does not satisfy identification or document requirements, exceeds the intention of the services we offer, or prevents staff from fulfilling the primary mission of the library.
